Since writing my LAB tutorial I've been revisiting various shots that I've had laying around with a view to reprocessing them. This one, for example, was taken at the same time as this one, back in the summer of 2004. I didn't post it at the time, as it was quite similar to the one I did post, and I couldn't produce a colour version that I liked. As you can see, the original has a rather different palette:

What I didn't much like was the contrast between her pink cardigan and the yellow bucket. In this version, using LAB, the colours are much more muted and, in my opinion at least, it's a better image. As always, I'd be interested to hear what you think.
